Be the first to review Hofner Contemporary Series HCT500/1 Violin Bass Sunburst + Hard Case. Write a review ›

The Hofner Contemporary series Violin Bass is a contemporary replica of the bass that Paul McCartney still plays on stage today. Featuring the original 1962 neck profile for guaranteed playability and classic tone. Constructed with a sustain block inside the body for modern, punchy, deep-resonating bass sounds, and using the original Hofner Staple-Top pickups, the Hofner HCT500/1 is affordable and couples an authentic Hofner design with the latest manufacturing techniques. 

Based on Paul McCartneys 1962 violin bass, the HCT500/1 replicates details of the original including the 'strip' machine heads, slot head screws on hardware and 2 piece neck. These are authentic touches that connect the Hofner Violin Bass to an earlier time. 

Comes bundled with a Genuine Hofner Hard Case

We Welcome Part Exchange

We welcome part exchanges on items over £500. We realise that sometimes you need to “move something on” to get your new guitar. We give fair prices and once agreed we stick to them. The only thing we ask is that you accurately describe your guitar. We have plenty of happy customers from our part exchange scheme.

How it works – If you are local, you can simply call in. If you are not local we will assess your guitar and give you a valuation via phone/e-mail (we may ask for pictures). Once the price is agreed, we always stick to it, and your new guitar will be removed from the market so the deal can be concluded.

You can either send us your guitar, or we can use our courier to pick up for a small charge (UK only). Once the guitar is with us and any balance is paid we can dispatch your new guitar.

Need to know more? Just e-mail us at: or call us on 01695-570023
